Publisher's Summary

In Coraline's family's new flat are twenty-one windows and fourteen doors. Thirteen of the doors open and close. The fourteenth is locked, and on the other side is only a brick wall, until the day Coraline unlocks the door to find a passage to another flat in another house just like her own.

Only it's different...

At first, things seem marvelous in the other flat. The food is better. The toy box is filled with wind-up angels that flutter around the bedroom. But there's another mother, and another father, and they want Coraline to stay with them and be their little girl. They want to change her and never let her go.

Other children are trapped there as well, lost souls behind the mirrors. Coraline is their only hope of rescue. She will have to fight with all her wits if she is to save the lost children, her ordinary life, and herself.

©2002 Neil Gaiman; (P)2002 HarperCollinsPublishers, Inc.

What the Critics Say

  • Book Sense Book of the Year Award Finalist, Children's Literature, 2003
  • Hugo Award Winner, Best Novella, 2003
  • Nebula Award Winner, Best Novella, 2003

"An electrifyingly creepy tale likely to haunt young readers for many moons." (Publishers Weekly)
"The story is odd, strange, even slightly bizarre, but kids will hang on every word...and they will love being frightened out of their shoes. This is just right for all those requests for a scary book." (School Library Journal)
"A magnificently creepy story...for stouthearted kids who love a brush with the sinister, Coraline is spot on." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Pretty good but..."

    I didn't enjoy it as much as The Graveyard Book. However, it was creepy and interesting look at how a child would deal with creepiness. It's good if you like Gaiman.

    "purely Gaiman"

    The only thing better than reading a Gaiman story is hearing the author himself read it. Coraline herself is resilient, loyal and courageous -- everything a girl should be.

    "Loved this"

    I absolutely loved this. It's odd and quirky and imagine and just different. Nice change of pace, fun to listen to, and I love Neil Gaiman's narration style.

    Story
    "Sheer Brilliance"

    If you are looking for a new book obsession, I highly recommend this story. The short bits of music are a little odd and not to my taste, but the story is spectacularly written with a delicious eerie thrill that will keep you hooked until the last word. From a picky reader to a hungry customer, this story is worth every penny.

    "Love It"

    Excellent character voices and general narration of a wonderfully bizarre and creepy story. The protagonist is a child but this is not exactly a story for children. An easy listen that will mess with your head a bit. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride.
